Is Courteney Cox upset that Jennifer Aniston shaded her in an interview?


Last week, Jennifer Aniston did a lengthy and superficial interview with Yahoo – I covered the piece here. Amongst Aniston’s infomercials about Living Proof and Aveeno and SmartWater, Bobbi Brown asked her about plastic surgery. Aniston said that she didn’t want to get surgery, that Justin Theroux would “put a gun to her head” if she ever got any work done, and then Aniston threw some not-so-subtle shade.

“I think what I have been witness to, is seeing women trying to stay ageless with what they are doing to themselves. I am grateful to learn from their mistakes, because I am not injecting s**t into my face. No honestly, I see them and my heart breaks. I think, ‘Oh god if you only know how much older you look.’ They are trying to stop the clock and all you can see is an insecure person who won’t let themselves just age…I am fortunate enough to know women like Gloria Steinem, who I think is one of the most stunning women on the planet, and doesn’t touch her face… You know, to each their own; I don’t judge it if you do it, but sometimes I wish I could beg the people I know, who I am very near and dear to, to not touch their face.”

[From Yahoo]

My first thought went to Courteney Cox, one of Jennifer’s most high-profile friends and one of the most obvious victims of too much plastic surgery/Botox/fillers/etc. All of us know that CC has messed up her face. Jennifer knows CC has messed up her face. But is it off-side of Jennifer to throw that shade towards an unnamed “Friend”? Star Magazine says CC is used to it.

Even though Jennifer Aniston never came out and said it, insiders say Jen was clearly talking about Courteney Cox. “She can deny it, but who else could she possibly have meant?” a source asks.

Courteney, 50, has been open about the fact that she has undergone multiple procedures, including Botox injections, Fraxel laser treatments and Ulthera, a nonsurgical treatment to lift skin on the eyebrows, neck and under the chin. She’s also reportedly had injections to plump her face.

An insider says Courteney is used to Jen’s judgmental comments.

“Courtney is upset that she made the remarks publicly, but this certainly isn’t a shock to her. It’s happened many times before.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Star’s source also says that Chelsea Handler, THE arbiter of all that is sober, proper and feministic, was “offended” by Jen’s pointed comments towards CC. But that’s what rings false to me. Allegedly, Cheslea and CC dislike each other, so this would have been the perfect time for Chelsea to kick CC while she was down. Eh.

What do you make of “Courteney is used to Jen’s judgmental comments”? Do you think Jennifer is legitimately concerned about CC or do you think Aniston is just being a bitchy Mean Girl?

    Such a jerk move, but it doesn’t surprise me. Aniston does seem like that one friend we all have who is constantly making little passive aggressive digs about everyone’s life and choices. I totally believe this.

    • Diana says:

      I totally agree. The bigger question is… Why do we insist on keeping these friends? They are awful.

      • Sleepyjane says:

        That is the age old question. They stay safe in their little passive aggressive shells. Unless other people recognize their behavior, it’s hard to break away from them without looking like the bad guy. Usually the passive aggressive friend is one that is included in a friendship group. I would never choose to be friends with these people on a one-on-one basis

      • Diana says:

        @Diana, @Sleepyjane: Seriously, why do we all have that friend??? They are positivity vampires; just sucking all the happy right out of you and replacing it with toxic self-doubt.

        I do agree, though, Sleepyjane, that they tend to be part of a larger group than a close, one-on-one friend. I never thought about it like that, but it’s often true (at least for us, I guess).

      • Jessica6 says:

        Here’s a link to a 1994 episode of “Dream On” where Courteney Cox guest starred. God, she is absolutely GORGEOUS here!

      • Meredith M. says:

        I totally agree with @Sleepyjane about it being hard to break off with someone like that without looking like the bad guy. I have a family member I’d love to give the boot, but she’s careful to reserve her nastiness for deniable little jabs aimed only at her closest family. Cutting her out would, I’m sure, mean dealing with a lot of outrage from others.

    • Shazz says:

      It is, especially since she’s had plastic surgery on her nose and chin apparently, and she gets laser treatments, etc

      • Belle Epoch says:

        Yah, pretty hypocritical. People magazine says Aniston is opposed to plastic surgery. Now that her nose is fixed, that is.

      • Sullivan says:

        This is like Kardasian calling Beyoncé fake. Pot. Kettle.

    • Badirene says:

      I had a person in my life that was like this too. She was my friend as long as I could do something for her, boost her ego and listen to her problems, when my life hit a rough patch she was a ghost, just fell off the grid. She then came back when she needed something, I kept walking and did not look back. Best thing I ever did.

      • doofus says:

        oh, I’ve been there, too…always there when SHE needed something or broke up with the latest of her serial-monogamy boyfriends (seriously, the girl was almost NEVER without a guy and would disappear for months then reappear when the break up happened).

        but the minute I needed something or when I finally started dating a guy I really liked, I was apparently the “selfish” one who “never had time” for her. she hung up on me (which she often did and I was always the one to call back and apologize) and I finally said to myself I’m NOT calling her back…let her call me back to apologize because she was in the wrong even before she was rude and hung up on me. she never did call back and that was pretty much the end of our friendship. I was very upset at first but after a few days I realized how I didn’t miss her drama and wound up much happier for it.

      • Diana says:

        Good for you, for asserting your boundaries, Badirene. Sounds like your ex-gf is a narcissist. I had a similar situation with a female cousin of mine. She was passive agressive, popular and super smart. Why she felt in any way threatened by me growing up was a mystery– I was younger, got decent grades but was no stellar performer like her and painfully insecure. But somehow I was on the receiving end of countless back-handed compliments and passive agressive put downs. It took me years to walk away from that relationship. And when I finally did… I ended up looking like the bad guy. I still get dirty looks and passive agressive comments from other family members like my own mother who wonders why I can’t “be a nice person” and stay in touch with her? It’s because I have a little thing called self respect!

      • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

        It can be easy to assume because a person has a title of friend in life that the relationship is reciprocal. It does take self respect to walk away and these types can teach you who to avoid in the future. A red flag is a person who starts the ‘friendship’ with a problem, issue, complaint, bad childhood story and you are the ‘there’ ‘there’ person – this is a symptom of a one way street. Also they Never ask you about Your family. This holds true in friendship and romantic relationships. Types like this seek those with low self esteem and little self respect becaue they can be a great audience. Boundaries- behaviors one will accept and not accept from others – are very important having self respect and being respected in turn.

      • Gabriela says:

        @badirene and @ Diana, I can totally relate. I had two friends who were like that and had to end the friendships. It was the hardest thing to do, but I’m happier for it and don’t have to deal with their drama. I also can relate to the cousin situation, my cousin is a year younger than me, has mom and dad, good looking husband, three beautiful healthy kids, is thin, tall, big boobs…but for some reason always had to compete with me and make jabs. I lost my dad, when I was 3, raised by a single mom, struggles with fertility issues…and she continued to emotionally abuse me, always throwing in my face that she could have kids and I couldn’t. I had gained some weight (after being thin, my whole life) and she now referred to me as the fat, obese cousin…who obviously, now had health problems…literally there is only so much abuse one can take….and two years ago, I deleted her off my FB…a few days later, she text messaged me…being a real snot…and said, I tried to find u on Facebook…wtf? Did you delete it or something…and I replied, no, I didn’t. And she went batshit crazy….cussing and putting me down…and I ignored it…she still tries to contact me, but I never respond…I have been the happiest, I’ve ever been. Sometimes, we just have to walk away. People are supposed to make us feel good at the end of the day, even if we don’t always agree. But it’s quite another thing to be used and abused.

  2. Darkladi says:

    Shade or no shade, Aniston was spot on with comments. I didn’t realize how bad Courtney Cox looked. Eek!

    • eliza says:

      Yep. Sad, because Courtney was very pretty prior to going nuts on the procedures. Look what Priscilla Presley did to her face.

      Ladies, there is nothing wrong with growing old naturally. Just take care of your skin and the rest falls into place.

      Men do not like these cat faced women with shiny skin. I have been sitting with a group of men who have spoken openly about their confusion as to why women all want to look like greasy faced cats. You don’t look younger. Just freakier. Most men like natural looking women. I have even heard men talk about their dislike of fake boobs.

      By trying to look younger than your chronological age you actually age yourself with all this crap injected into your face.

      • QQ says:

        SOOO DEAD AT Greasy Faced Cats!!!…the Real Shade here is that Cox was really the prettier more delicate natural beauty out of the two of them Surgeries fillers overtanning and competitive skinniness aside

      • FingerBinger says:

        @eliza In Priscilla Presley’s case she was the victim of a phony plastic surgeon and fake botox. Courtney Cox deliberately did those things to her face.

      • eliza says:

        @Finger- Priscilla chose to mess her face up with fillers /Botoxin the first place. I understand that she, along with Larry King’s wife and several other women were victims of a shady doctor but Priscilla could have chosen to age naturally because she was a beautiful woman. Her face started looking bad way before she got involved with the shady doctor. You could tell the second she started using Botox and fillers.

      • eliza says:

        @QQ- I always thought Cox was the prettiest on the show. I just hate that women are becoming so insecure they think that these faces of theirs look better. I can spot the use of Botox and fillers on a woman a mile away. There are some women who get subtle work done and tiny touches and they look great but the bar core users of the Tox and fillers can be spotted from the moon.

      • HH says:

        @Eliza – I don’t think it’s just limited to women wanting to please men. Society has a whole places value on a women’s youth. In the entertainment business I can only assume the pressure is coming from all sides.

        And no men don’t like the cat faced look, but I also imagine the women with these faces don’t like it either. It’s just plastic surgery gone too far.

      • Grant says:

        Courteney really was a beautiful, beautiful woman.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Don’t bring cats into it! In fact, my cats are offended by your comparison.

        What cat looks like this?

      • Sal says:

        “greasy faced cats”
        Ow ow ow! I’m recovering from gallstone surgery and that fit of laughing damn near killed me! Its true though, they do. And while I’ll concede that Aniston was right about Cox, its still a sh*tty thing to say, in public, about a long time friend. Perhaps if she had taken Cox aside a long time ago and explained to her how it really looks, that may have worked.

      • Mena says:

        It’s not always all about what men think, though. All my life I have been a beautiful woman. Now little lines and wrinkles and eye bags are appearing and it scares me. I don’t care what men think, I’m not happy with my looks fading and I intend to fight it.

      • FLORC says:

        Yes, pricilla got the injections. She didn’t seek out someone to mess her face up forever. To suggest because you get botox you want this to happen is awful.
        And on occasion I get botox. When I get really bad migraines due to weather or environment I adore them. It’s a miracle for me. If I had a doctor do that to me I wouldn’t deserve it. Uness you say “inject me with pure tox” you don’t deserve it.

        I’m sure you’re still lovely.
        I’m not even 30 and I have this line of skin under my neck when I’m stretched. I intend to get it in time too. Our choice!

  3. Charlotte says:

    She may well be genuinely concerned, but mentioning it in an interview – and as a way of essentially humble bragging about being so natural – was mean and not in the spirit of true friendship.

    • Green Girl says:

      Yup, that’s what I was thinking. I am sure Aniston’s comments were meant to draw attention to how great she looks, but they only make me feel so sorry for Courteney Cox. Look at that picture above, with CC wearing a striped shirt! I never really noticed it at the time “Friends” was first on, but she was absolutely stunning.

      • Charlotte says:

        CC was so beautiful. I hope she’s happy and content with her new face. For reals.

      • Mel M says:

        I know! CC was gorgeous and she always seemed to have that porcelain skin like Nicole Kidman and look at both of them now! It’s not like they had sun damage and it looked like they took care of their skin so I don’t understand why they both went crazy with the work.

    • Camilla says:

      I agree, that was a prime bitchmove. Even if they aren’t super close anymore, it’s still a low-blow. She could have kept to: I see women who do this, and I don’t understand it. The fact that she added all that about “people near and dear to my heart” is just stupid. Near and dear enough to diss them in public, huh?

      • Ag says:

        i agree, total bitchmove. it’d be one thing for aniston to say something to cox in private (if she is really concerned), but to say something publicly, that’s just unnecessarily mean. real friends don’t do shit like that.

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree – what she’s saying might be true, but an interview was not the place to do it, when everyone would assume she was talking about Courteney.

      I just watched a few early episodes of Friends yesterday (thanks, summer cold and cough) and Courteney was so stunning. It makes me sad that a woman that beautiful felt the need to do what she’s done. I hope she never does anymore, and everything settles. She’s still very pretty and in amazing shape, hopefully she’s more accepting of herself.

  4. Bridget says:

    If your friend was doing that to your face, wouldn’t you sit them down and talk to them? Granted, not in an interview.

    The CC-Aniston friendship has clearly been up and down in recent years. They were so tight for a long, long time and then seemingly had a falling out over Courtney’s divorce. This is the dirt I want, not the boring Theroux stuff!

    • Mrs. Darcy says:

      What would you say though? It’s anyone’s right to do what they please with their appearance, how is it anyone else’s business? Plus you run the risk of really hurting their feelings, what if they themselves regret doing whatever they’ve done? Jennifer should have kept her trap shut instead of trying to self promote when she herself has had various procedures over the years (hello nose and lips).

      • Bridget says:

        Its Hollywood. There’s no way that subject doesn’t come up in conversation regularly. And considering that EVERYONE gets work done I can’t shade someone for making that choice, but it’s a question of the quality of the job. I’d go see Aniston’s surgeon over CC’s any day.

        Also, there’s no way that CC isn’t having this discussion with her management especially now that Cougartown is done and she may want a new job. She’s rendered herself unwatchable.

      • Green Girl says:

        I was wondering this too, Mrs. Darcy. What could she really say at this point? It’s plastic surgery, and I don’t even know if it’s “undoable” at this point. Even if it is, it’s not like CC can just run out and get it fixed the same way you can run to the store and get a new pair of jeans. Besides, how do you even begin the subject? “Uh, dude, WTH with your face?”

        Not quite the same thing, but I had a friend who gave me advice (I am using the term loosely) on what to do with my hair. In the middle of a restaurant, so even if I wanted to, I couldn’t do anything about it. I felt horrible the rest of the night

    • Kate2 says:

      I wouldn’t say anything. I might hate it but unless I was worried my friend was addicted to the surgery, I would zip it.

      • Mrs. Darcy says:

        @Green Girl I agree, why rub salt in the wound when what’s done is done in some cases?

        @Bridget I don’t aagree that Courtney is openly discussing facial procedures with her management at all. It is still a sensitive, personal subject, just because she is in the public eye and we are talking about it, does not mean she herself is so blase.

      • Pepsi Presents...Coke says:

        I think she is talking about it, or at least she has in the past. I remember her saying that she is fighting aging tooth and nail and looks upon her upcoming 50th birthday with horror. I don’t know if she’s said what she has done but she’s been upfront about wanting to get more.

  5. Gina says:

    Courtney has become an official card carrying member of the I want to smile but just cant force my mouth to move club! Move over Joan Rivers, Courtney is in line to take your place as reigning queen of plastic.

  6. Hissyfit says:

    Although the concern is there, the sincerity and intention is not. If she’s “really” concerned about Cox’s botox and fillers obsession, she should’ve told her personally not in an interview, calling her out as insecure. That makes her a backstabbing two faced b_tch of a friend.

    As for Handler, Ansiton can call her a c_nt in public and I’m sure Handler would still give her high praises and kiss her ass because that’s what Huvane is going to let her do.

  7. Chris says:

    Don’t much care about either of ’em but by Gawd that super-straight hair is a very harsh look.

    • Mrs. Darcy says:

      I was noticing how severe it is on the arbiter of the pin straight middle part for 20 yrs now, Gwyneth Paltrow. They need to let go of the 90’s.

    • Looloo says:

      That’s what jarred me too. It looks like mannequin hair. I don’t like it. Face curtains.

    • Pepsi Presents...Coke says:

      I think that every time I see that photo.

  8. Pumpkin Pie says:

    Quote: “sometimes I wish I could beg the people I know, who I am very near and dear to, to not touch their face.”
    So why don’t you?

  9. K says:

    Courtney could counter with faux concern over all her friends who process the hell out of their hair for a chance at the beachy look, which makes them look haggard.

    • CaliYalie says:

      Ha! Love! There is so much hypocrisy going on here, but there’s not enough time in the world to go into it.

  10. salma says:

    at lest she has friends to shade not like some other people . And yes courtney ruined her face , she was very pretyy

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Seriously? Why would you even want to have friends if all you’re going to do is talk about them behind their backs? Wow.

    • truthSF says:

      What kind of ass backward thinking is that? So it’s better that she has a friend she can shade…girl, do you even think before you type/talk?

      • Candy Love says:

        I wouldn’t take what SALMA said seriously her comment was to “shade” another actress basically Salma trolling.

    • Soulsister says:

      @Salma – at lest she has friends to shade
      LOL. I’m glad that I’m not the only one who thinks this is such a dumb comment. I suspect that the poster was trying to throw shade on Angelina Jolie but really didn’t think through their argument to well. LOL

    • Bee says:

      Are you shading Angelina? Lame. She actually does have friends & would never be passive aggressive towards them in interviews.
      Aniston & her crew are catty mean girls.

  11. Greata says:

    Botox or no…this friend is not a friend!

  12. Lesley says:

    I have a feeling there is some serious jealousy on the part of JA with CC. Courtney was always gorgeous and JA was very “girl next door looking” I think JA always wished she was as naturally pretty, I think she’s probably always had a passive aggressive axe to grind with cc. But I think cc knew it all stemmed from insecurity. I think cc was a real friend to her but not so much the other way around

    • mayamae says:

      When two women have a problem, why do we always jump to the conclusion that it’s due to jealousy? I don’t think that JA has always been jealous of CC’s beauty. I also don’t think that CC was jealous that JA was much wealthier and married to one of the hottest men in Hollywood, while CC was married to a dork with substance abuse issues.

  13. kcarp says:

    Ya she was being mean.

    CH offended? Seriously? I think people should only be offended if they are called a racial slur, homophobic, or something big. Being offended because someone you know might have said something about someone else? Is that all you have to be offended about?

  14. Nancy says:

    JA, in my opinion, is one the most superficial and narcissistic women in Hollywood. Other than talking about her hair and her body she cannot communicate a grain of depth in an interview. She’s almost 50. Extremely try hard. I don’t dislike her. I feel sorry for her.

    • laura says:

      I agree with you JA is a superficial, not interesting person and not even pretty in my opinion. But she is 45 so she has 5 years before reaching 50!

  15. Vic says:

    I think in her vapid, narcissistic world, she was searching for something of substance to say and used her friend to do it. Even though it was still all about elevating herself and outward appearances.

  16. Jlee says:

    When JA was going through her divorce she was w/CC & her family constantly. I saw very little support in return when CC’s marriage of 10 years fell apart. If I was CC I’d have told JA to hit the bricks a long time ago.

  17. Dingo says:

    When I look at CC I just get sad. Why oh why!

  18. Kris says:

    I think those comments are such bullshit. Maybe she doesn’t do fillers NOW but she sure as hell has done them in the past. It’s judgy to call your “friends” out on something you totally once did. Ugh, and I hate the “fiance will put a gun to my head” bit.

  19. Rhiley says:

    I miss CC’s old face. She was pretty standard looking, but at the same time, a real knockout. CC gives a good interview as well, better than Aniston in many ways. Plus, I think she is a much more interesting person, mainly based on the men she has been with: Michael Keaton, creepy Adam Durkwitz, David Arquette. She likes a strange duck.

  20. Mike says:

    How is this woman able to maintain any friendships? She is a self – involved person who lives a empty life of vacations and shit movies. I have rarely ever seen or heard her doing something that is actually important in the world at large. The gap between her and Angelina Jolie gets larger and larger as they age and the sum total of their lives get added up

    • Jessica6 says:

      You know, I can’t for the life of me understand WHY her craptastic movies continue to be distributed? They continually bomb at the box office, or if not bombing, they rarely make a healthy profit. Just don’t get it.

      • lucy2 says:

        3 of the last 4 she’s been in have grossed over $200 million. She had a bad streak with a bunch of rom coms, but since doing more comedy has done pretty well.

      • Jessica6 says:

        Thanks, Lucy2…my bad.

  21. rianic says:

    I do Botox around twice a year (I’m 38 and have forehead lines from severe nearsightedness – had them since early 20s). If you use a doctor who understands that you want to look natural and uses a light hand, you’ll be good. I even found that my migraines were less frequent (probably bc I can’t squint those muscles? Anyway my neuro said it can help)

    However, I have a friend who goes on and on about how she would “never inject poison into her body – you’re a pharmacist Maria – you know it’s literally POISON!!” And I want to look back at her and said “yet you put silicone bags in your breasts?”

    Yeah. We all have that friend

    • casey says:

      Yeah, I get botox to help with strabismus. It’s made such a positive difference to my life, yet I still get comments from ‘friends’ about how I ‘inject poison’ into my body and how ‘they would never do that’. Ridiculously judgemental, especially considering all of the other stuff we do to ourselves for cosmetic reasons.

      • Sal says:

        Casey have you looked into having your strabismus operated on? I had strabismus decades ago, when I was 4, and my parents decided to have me operated on. It really would save you having to inject botox all the time. It was a simple operation 34 odd years ago, I bet its even simpler now.

  22. perplexed says:

    She could have been talking about any number of people though. I mean, it is Hollywood. She didn’t actually mention the word “friend” or how close she was to the subjects — she just said “women.” And since she works in Hollywood, she most likely sees a lot of women injecting stuff into themselves!

    CC did come to mind, but so did Nicole Kidman and a lot of other people Aniston has either worked with or knows. Very few people in her age range in Hollywood look that natural…

    • Gail says:

      I’m with you. I didn’t immediately think of Courtney when I read this quote and I’m surprised everyone seems to be in agreement on it. It’s quite possible that the majority of women she socializes with have this obsession going on and the means to indulge it.

      On the surface, it didn’t strike me as mean or inappropriate.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      In her quote she said she saw it in women that she saw in HW (strangers), and said that she wishes she could tell people to stop doing that to her face, because they are near and dear to her. So she spoke of strangers and her friends.

  23. lolamd says:

    She is an insecure person who put her friends down to make themselves feel better, at least in my opinion. And I do think JA is jealous of CC’s natural beauty. Why else would she end her first Aveeno commercial with something along the lines of “the beautiful Jennifer Aniston”. Thanks for the reminder Jen.

    • ann says:

      I remember Kelly LaBlock did a Pantene ad that started with “Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful”. Well, sorry to say, I did “hate” her after that and still do. My reaction with the Aveeno ad was “What!! How could she say that?” That would be like a person going around saying “I’m the greatest”. At least Kelly was pretty at the time.

  24. grace says:

    I don’t think JA is pretty at all. She is an example of what exercise, money and good hair can give you. If you have three things, you can look pretty good. If you have crappy hair, and are poor, you are almost destined to look old and bad. Take it from someone who knows, “LOL”, b/c I have been rich, and I have been poor….with good hair and bad….and I looked a hell of a lot better when I had the hair and the moolah!!!

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I think that JA’s looks could’ve helped her further her career (at least critically) if she hadn’t had the nose jobs, dyed her hair, flat ironed it, done the keratin treatment–if she had embraced her natural looks. I don’t think she’s gorgeous–I think that she’s attractive, but in terms of films, she has the kind of looks that can be dressed up and down VERY easily. Sort of like Amy Adams–Amy Adams can look cute in one movie, a pretty but matronly young woman, and gorgeous in the next.

      • Gail says:

        gee, that’s optimistic. I don’t think Aniston has the inclination (primarily) or the talent (sorry) to explore the types of “dressed down” complex characters that would attract critical acclaim. I remember her in “The Good Girl.” I don’t think her audience is interested in her as those types of characters and I don’t think she has the range to make them work.

  25. Tippy says:

    Jenn’s definitely shading Courteney, but in this case she is the voice of reason.

    Whatever surgical procedures Courteney has had done appear to have been botched.

    Cox seems to have an unhealthy obsession with retaining the beauty of her youth and Aniston is willing to stick her own neck out to hopefully get her friend to come to her senses.

  26. TheRealMaya says:

    Courteney has always been an amazing friend which evident the way her girlfriends like Lisa Kudrow, Laura Dern and many other talks about her. Courteney was there for Jennifer when she was going through her divorce and yet when Courteney was going through a divorce – where was Jennifer? Busy wrecking Justin’s 14 year relationship with Heidi and trying to hide her cheating behaviour by buying Chelsea Handler to verbally attack Angelina and her children with racist slurs. Jennifer was never there for Courteney and I think that is what finally made Courteney cool down their friendship.

    Their friendship already took a hit when Courteney refused to play Jennifer’s dirty games and confessed that Brad never cheated and he told Jennifer the second the started to develope feelings for another woman. Courteney confesses that Brad was always honest and wanted a clean break and that Jennifer was the one who told him to go and get Angelina out of his system and then come back. Since then there have been cracks in Courteney’s and Jennifer’s friendship.

    Same with Lisa – never talks about Jennifer and word is that she cannot stand her and how she uses people.

    Jennifer has never been a good friend – she is one of those people who are only friends with someone they can use and put down to make themselves feel better. In fact Jennifer doesn’t have any real female friends except Courteney – the rest are showbusiness friends who were bought by CAA to make Jennifer look like a girl’s girl. I have never read any interviews about her so called friends ever praised Jennifer in any way – nada and that says all I need to know about this selfish woman.

    She has a point thought. Courtney used to be the prettiest Friend and now she looks like a plastic doll. I still get sad when I see her new plastic face. She and Christa Miller must share the same quack doctor. They both look sad.

  28. perplexed says:

    I don’t get why Aniston is considered vain and shallow but somehow CC is considered somehow “deeper” as a person. CC talks about she refuses to age as much as she can. They’re both concerned about their looks, and CC has admitted how much of a premium her own family puts on looks. I do think its natural they’d be concerned about aging because of the nature of the industry they’re in however.

    • TC says:

      Maybe because CC is at least honest about her fear of aging and has revealed the cosmetic procedures she’s had while Aniston acts like her looks are natural and her upkeep is simply maintained by Aveeno, and Living Proof when the public knows she’s gotten laser treatments, chemical peels, nose jobs, restylane fillers and has worn hair extensions for the past 10 years.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Remember when she ‘debunked’ that rumor that she spent hundreds of dollars a month on her beauty routine, and was trying to say that she only used department store brand crap like vaseline, etc in her beauty routine i.e. she barely spent more than a couple hundred dollars a year? YEAH.

        I don’t think that Jennifer is a good rep for anything–skincare, hair. Because she promotes one thing (like her hair being the best thing evah! and all of the accolades that comes with it), and then when that’s over and done with, she flip flops (by saying that her hair, which was oh so amazing was actually EXTENSIONS) and uses that for some more promo (then promotes the living proof line when her hair can’t take the extensions anymore), and then flip flops on that again (keratin treatment to straighten her hair, when her living proof line was supposed to be the end all for her hair)…..same thing with her skin.

        I like Courteney–I remember being shocked when she outright said that she was afraid of aging, was about to shade her, etc….but I think that was brave of her to say. No one who messes with their faces says that. They’re still in denial. I don’t think CC is–not anymore. Maybe she feels like it’s too late to turn back from what she’s done.

  29. Mrs McCubbins says:

    I’m sure Jennifer has many friends in HW who do this to themselves. She never singled CC out. We just happen to think it’s CC because her “facial work” is so obvious and she happens to be someone we know Jennifer is close to. I think people like to use the smallest things she says and blow them up just to have a reason to justify their dislike. I dont see anyhting wrong with what she said, in fact, I agree. I can see botox a mile away. It rarely looks good and dont get me started on the fish lips.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      ..or maybe she just thinks her friend is beautiful AS IS and doesn’t need all that crap. That’s not really an insult if you think about it.

      I would be sad if one of my girls messed with her face as much as Courtney has, when she was beautiful to begin with.

    • perplexed says:

      Yeah, judging by those housewives shows on Bravo, I figured everyone in California does something to their faces, and that JA could have been talking about just about anybody.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      It is an assumption that it’s Courteney–but it’s not like she said ‘I’ve seen so many people in HW destroy their faces’–with her making it a general statement, she said that she’s seen it happen with people who are ‘near and dear’ to her–so of course people are going to look at her friends. And the only friend of hers, who is ‘near and dear’ to her that *I* know of who’s messed their face up THAT bad is Courteney.

      To me, it’s the same as if she was being interviewed about her diet, and she said something along the lines of ‘There are so many people who eat junk food and just don’t take care of their bodies. People who are near and dear to me.’–and she had a fat friend. Same implication.

      Also, imo, it’s not that no one disagrees with her. But if you REALLY thought that your friend’s face was f-cked up, would you say it in a public forum? I wouldn’t. I think that’s cruel. Especially since, in Courteney’s case–the damage is done. She can’t fix what she’s done. If you want to say something like that about someone–then say it to the person who you think needs to hear it. Not to the public. I think it was incredibly insensitive.

      • perplexed says:

        She did refer to the people getting plastic surgery (i.e “women”) in the plural though. So that made me think she was talking about more than one person she knows. Nicole Kidman came to mind (who she worked with on that Adam Sandler movie) in general terms as much as Courtney Cox did (as someone close to her). If someone asks her whether she wants plastic surgery and she provides an answer, I guess any comment about plastic surgery could be construed as referring back to Courtney Cox, but that’s simply because Cox got so, so much of it and is virtually unrecognizable now…not necessarily because I think Aniston has dropped any big hints. If Cox ‘s surgery looked more subtle like Michelle Pfeiffer’s, I don’t think it would strike anybody to wander to her name.

      • Mrs McCubbins says:

        VG, I’m sure she has more than one friend who is near and dear to her. I dont see what she did as incredibly insensitive. To who?

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I’m not saying that she’s just referring to Courteney, she spoke of people she saw i.e. strangers, and people who are her friends.

        @Mrs McCubbins…I’m sure she has more than one friend who’s screwed up their face. I’m not saying that. And even if she wasn’t talking about Courteney—she’s talking about HER friends….she said it…”but sometimes I wish I could beg the people I know, who I am very near and dear to, to not touch their face.”—–Courteney comes to mind because it’s true.

        And you don’t think that it isn’t incredibly insensitive to the friends that she was talking about? That she would specifically mention THEM, when talking about people who are screwing up their faces. She’s calling them out, publicly. Which doesn’t help. I would be completely embarrassed if that happened to me.

        And wow–why can’t her words stand on her own. She’s what? 45? 46? She said that she had good friends, who she cares about, who f-ck up their faces beyond all recognition. She said it. Her words were not twisted at all. Maybe she didn’t mean to hurt her friends–sometimes we say stuff without thinking–but she said it. Why can’t people accept that?

        Every time she says something that gets an eyebrow raise, it’s constantly explained away. She isn’t some young actress, who’s new in HW, and not accustomed to the world of PR. She has one of the best publicists managing her. She knows what she’s doing. And comments like that make me realize more and more why Courteney told her that she wanted to focus on herself. Who else knows what Jennifer has said about her, over the years.

    • snowflake says:

      i agree. except for botox, love it!

      • lisa2 says:

        OH please.. she made a very specific statement. Nobody miss quoted her or twisted her words. She knew or had to know that when she said this that people would speculate on which of her friends she was talking about. I saw a lot of her loyal fans on a site say they thought of Courteney too. So nobody is stretching anything.

        She could have spoken in general terms but she didn’t. She used the phrase “near and dear” to me. Which again opens the door for speculation. She could have not even implied anything about maybe a friend. But she did. She wanted to come off as superior and that her methods were better. She ended up once again being passive aggressive. This time toward her friend(s)

        She does this a lot.. some people are just smart enough to see it as it really is.

  30. whatevs says:

    I don’t think she should have made such an obvious dig on her friend publicly, BUT if I had a friend doing things like that to her face, what kind of a friend would I be to NOT say something to her? In a friend way? How could you sit there and watch them do something that totally changes their face and not say something? I would be hurt if I found out that my friend thought I looked horrible and didn’t at the least say something to me. 😞

  31. Chris says:

    Just a rambling thought….one of my favourite (and extremely effective, post-50) beauty routines is massaging oil into my complexion. A really attentive, rhythmic few minutes every night. I cannot imagine how I’d dare do this if bits of my face had alien material underneath! I’d be scared of it moving around…..errrk.
    I remember one of Madge’s newly unveiled faces and that was *all* I could think of… do you cope with skincare? (which, imo, is the better longterm option in the first place!)

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      It’s injected way beneath the muscle or into the muscle itself, not underneath the surface of the skin.

      But yeah I can see how that would be scary, like, can I touch my face now? Can I see the injection?

      • Chris says:

        Ah, thanks!
        But all those fillers they have around their eye sockets to eliminate circles and bags etc, and, omg, the chicken fillets in the cheeks for that sexy hamster look….ai di mi, I would be terrified in case anything shifted!

      • Lady D says:

        Chris have you seen the video online with the woman who’s butt implant flipped around? Instead of a round butt, you could see the entire implant. It looks like a wide flat soup bowl under her butt skin. Makes the stomach quiver watching her manipulate it around the right way. Pretty sure the video can still be Googled.

  32. Sara says:

    Odd being that I could hardly reconginize JA when she did Bounty Hunter and Marley and Me. Something was crazy about her face during those. Maybe she tried it then and was like f..k no never again and then it all settled and now she looks back to her normal face. I think injections are a slippery slope.

  33. Fue McCormick says:

    “You know, to each their own; I don’t judge it …” Yes, yes you do judge it.
    I’m getting tired of JA.

  34. Sal says:

    People are only *just* waking up to this? Aniston is well-known for making snarky and passive-aggressive comments, comments that normally go straight over her fans heads because they cannot conceive she is like that, but its plain as day that she is. I think she’d be exhausting to have as a friend. She always comes across as affected by fame and like she thinks she is better than anyone else.

  35. Anon says:

    I just think JA is a mean girl…a passive aggressive one. She has said she fights dirty and so she does. I think Jen would do anything to stay in the public’s attention. And for JA to say no plastic surgery or other things done to her own face…what does Judge Judy say about peeing on her leg and calling it rain?

  36. ike says:

    Wow, does she EVER look like a camel in the first picture.

  37. gigoloaunt says:

    Man, reading the comments on a post about Jennifer is kinda crazy. People sure do like to reach.

  38. Jayna says:

    I think Courtney is still beautiful. At least, she doesn’t have big, fat cheeks. I think her lip implant made her mouth look odd because it’s wider than her mouth used to seem and gives her the Jokerish effect. That and Botox are the two things that have made her face odd at times. I think she’s calmed down on the filler. It’s not as bad as before. If she would calm down on the botox and the first picture doesn’t show much filler these days, she looks fine. But the mouth she won’t every give up, but it’s what distorts her face the most. If she would just have been more minimal with that, but she had thin lips. I get why she wanted them plumper as she got older. That’s the thing a woman hates the most as she ages, is her thin lips looking thinner, but sometimes they go overboard. When she’s not overbotoxed like below, I think her eyes are beautiful. She had an eyejob, but they did a great job. And her eyebrows aren’t frozen upward, so light on the Botox in this link comparing her face before and after.

    But those photos I saw of Courtney on the beach recently, she has a rockin’ body. I can’t believe she’s 50.

    What year was the photo of Courtney and Jen (not the Friends’ era photo, the first one together)? She looks beautiful in that photo.

  39. Jayna says:

    Wait until Justin dumps her for a 20 something and she is nearing 50. It’s easy to say now she won’t have plastic surgery but she hasn’t hit that age where women say the biggest differences start that are more noticeable for most, their 50s. At least, she’s smart enough to know an over-Botoxed, pillow-faced, trout-pout face isn’t the answer to everlasting youth looks-wise, but I bet she will get something like her eyes done, mini face-lift, something, once a major shift in her face happens.

  40. michele says:

    Over rated has-beens who were lucky to have been cast in a show that had incredible writers way, way, way, back then. Couldn’t care less about either of them but Courtney is slightly more interesting and attractive at least.

  41. Lux says:

    Courteney may have messed with her face but I find it pretty offensive what Jennifer said. Courteney has constantly been there for her, to the point that Jennifer was basically the third wheel in Courteney and David’s marriage. The fact that she would throw someone under the bus who has so consistently been there for her just shows what kind of a person Jennifer really is.

  42. snowflake says:

    wow, what a bullshit story. i doubt courtney’s the only one of jen’s friends who’s had plastic surgery. but hey, way to feed into the tabloid images of the two! and most fall for it………

  43. CaliYalie says:

    I think Courteney looks gorgeous in the lead pic with her and Jen. Yes, she’s gone over the edge with procedures, but Jen doesn’t look good either. She’s a sun worshipper and an admitted drinker; she for sure goes to the dermatologist on a regular basis and probably has Botox and fillers (although not to the extent of Courteney). To call her out is hypocritical, and frankly not a good friend, especially considering how good a friend Courteney has been to her.

  44. serena says:

    Courtney Cox used to be such a stunning beauty! She really messed up with her face, and I think she realize it. Also, maybe Chelsea is really upset because she did sh*t to her face too, so could be a shade for the both of them?

  45. Kat says:

    Jen needs to wise up, but she won’t. I suspect she’s the type to surround herself with sycophants. You can’t be the passive-agressive mean girl without your army of plastics.

    TL;DR: CC is awesome, Jen’s a bitch. I do wish that CC hadn’t had so much work done. She didn’t need it.

  46. KATHERINE says:

    what is wrong with speaking the truth—i admire jennifer aniston for her honest remarks–hopefully courteney will get the message– hopefully 99.9% of the others who had some form of plastic surgery will come to their senses–i wish all my friends were as truthful as jennifer
